About me
I’m a creative lead who specialises in combining code & design as part of the creative process, currently employed at Random Studio in Amsterdam. Previously I have worked for Local Projects in New York as art director for 1,5 years, and have been part of United Visual Artists (www.uva.co.uk) in London for 5 years, heading interactive, visual content & photography. Achievements I'm most proud of as of late were mostly challenges in project management and creative direction. They include delivering the first real 30+ player interactive LED court for Nike, designing for live performances with Beyonce & Massive Attack and developing a complex 21 robotic pendulum installation for the enthralling MONA museum in Tasmania. These success of these projects depended on the combination of my technical background in terms of interaction design with a visual eye and understanding of client and brand experience.
Projects
  • PERPETUUM
    PERPETUUMInspired by the backdrop of our fast-paced environment, ‘Perpetuum’ was conceived as a kinetic, revolving landscape that invites people to explore, pause and reflect. Three rotating rings orbit around a central light sculpture, generating evolving compositions, and layering colour onto the dynamic architecture.
  • A spatial listening experience for Bottega Veneta
    A spatial listening experience for Bottega VenetaTo showcase Daniel Lee’s AW 2020 collection for Bottega Veneta in Seoul, we were enlisted to design a pop-up experience and store scenography. Drawing inspiration from its location next to the iconic Hyundai Card Music Library, we created a spatial listening experience based on the ‘Acousmonium’ sonic installations as pioneered by Francois Bayle in the 1970s.
  • Nike Rise 2.0
    Nike Rise 2.0As part of Nike’s 2015 Rise campaign of Greater China, we designed and developed the Interactive Court, that would feature in the later stages of the competition. This Court was the first fully interactive LED court in the world, able to track up to 30 players on the court simultaneously.
  • Massive Attack World Tours 2014-2016
    Massive Attack World Tours 2014-2016For Massive Attack’s 2014 Tour we designed as part of United Visual Artists a stage with kinetic, rotating LED Mesh panels whilst also directing the overall visual design and sequencing of the Tour’s individual tracks. For the 2016 Tour stage design centred around a central protruding section of LED, reminiscent of the Google Search bar. Content was designed to interact with this physical statement.
  • Generative Type Experiments
    Generative Type ExperimentsA typographic experiment was induced with biometric data to create a typographic tool that allowed the creation of unique signatures based on a person’s current emotional and physical state. App was presented as part of a suite of artistic uses of biometric data commissioned by a bioanalythics company.
  • Math Text Book Cover Series
    Math Text Book Cover SeriesFor the national Dutch mathematics textbook series “Getal & Ruimte” a new identity and generative cover design was developed. I was asked to design and deliver the project as a generative identity, developing an app that would export high resolution vector graphics.

  • NIKE RISE CHINA
    NIKE RISE CHINAChina is a nation of passionate young ballers. However, no one encourages these amateur players and they have very little access to quality training and facilities. Consequently, these kids lack the self-belief and confidence to progress in the sport they love. We set out to change this by taking 30 regular players from diverse backgrounds on an incredible journey to show the whole nation that the ability to RISE is in all of us. We trained them intensely for 6 weeks, using elite coaches from
